As of '87 this plane was owned by Ted Contri of Reno, NV. It was in flyable condition at the time.

Probably shot while owned (one of a pair actually) by "Homer" Roundtree, and parked at Chico,CA. And I assume Mr. Rich Robbins is one of the two aspiring fighter pilots next to the plane...
I have B&W photos of a stock P--51d in the weeds at CIC in Aero Unions parking tarmac. It was registered as an NL-XXXXX but limited and was there in the weeds until the early 1980s. Is this one in the Same a/C? Originally it was parked Behind Aero Unions Hanger on the public land streetside by sometime pilot Dale Newton.(co -owner of Aero union)I am trying to find this "NL"P51 and where it went !HELP!!
